The judge overseeing the state pension conflict is slated to hear arguments on a number of motions Thursday. The window for voting on a proposed settlement ends Friday.
A series of public-employee unions are suing over changes made to their benefits as part of a 2011 overhaul of the state pension system. That conflict will move ahead in court next month, unless there’s a settlement in the case.
Just what will determine the approval or rejection of a settlement remains unclear. That’s because Superior Court Judge Sarah Taft-Carter imposed a gag order on the parties in the pension dispute.
Taft-Carter is slated to consider a series of motions on the case today. Among them, one group of retired teachers and state employees who want the judge to undo changes to their pension benefits.
